Mary Ann Caws Elected to American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Over her 40-year academic career, Mary Ann Caws has authored, edited and translated more than 60 books. A distinguished professor of French, English, and Comparative Literature at the CUNY Graduate Center, Prof. Caws was elected a member of the 2009 class of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the highest honors in the United States, in October. Her area of expertise is as varied as her interests, from 20th-century avant-garde literature and art, to the intricacies of French cooking. “The French language and Provence are so tightly knit together in my mind with poetry,” explains Prof. Caws. “The whole thing is a great influence on everything else I do.”
